'The Conjuring': inSing visits the Warren Occult Museum

The town of Monroe, Connecticut is the location of one of the strangest places on Earth.

Ed and Lorraine Warren's Occult Museum is the world’s largest and oldest museum of its kind, boasting a vast collection of haunted items and items allegedly used in occult and satanic rituals. Items include Satanic bibles, Ouija boards, human skulls, African fertility doll, Satanic totems, coffins, all manners of figurines and even a demon-possessed doll.

The Warrens founded the New England Society for Psychic Research in 1952 and for decades were the most celebrated 'ghosthunters’ in America, investigating more than 3,000 cases of possessions, poltergeists and hauntings.

Their most well-known and most controversial case was The Amityville haunting in Long Island, New York, which has since become the inspiration for several books and the 1979 horror film classic 'The Amityville Horror'. That film was a big hit that several sequels were made and then in 2005, a remake was released.

The Occult Museum is featured in horror movie, ‘The Conjuring’ and its follow-up 'The Conjuring 2'.

The movie is directed by James Wan ('Saw', 'Insidious') and stars Patrick Wilson ('Watchmen', 'Young Adult'), Vera Farmiga ('Orphan', 'Bates Motel').

Speaking to inSing, Lorraine Warren, 86, said that the Perron case was "their most intense and disturbing investigation in their career".

"Despite the artistic license taken by James (Wan), the movie is fairly accurate and shows what really went on in that house. From the way we investigate and the different disturbances in the house to the exorcism performed by Ed to expel the evil spirit from Carolyn Perron," Warren said. 

inSing.com went to Monroe to visit the Occult Museum to experience 'The Conjuring' first-hand.
